Electronic Cut Outs Installed

I finally got around to installing the cut outs. I wanted them for the normal reasons, plus I am wiring them also into a hobbs switch to open any time I am over 10 psi of boost.

Here they are as of today. I still need to wire them in, and put turn downs on them.

Pretty cool idea with the switch. I've often thought about hooking them up to a switch that was activated by the opening of the carb's secondaries.

Those aren't QTP brand, are they? I had one installed on my Camaro years ago and after about 4 months, carbon build-up prevented them from sealing correctly when they were closed, and no amount of cleaning could help.

They are DMH Cut Outs. One of my buddies has them on his GTO, and has had no problem with them for over a year. These have a 4 year free replacement guarantee. They told me to make sure the motor it mounted slightly higher so any water runs away from them.

Here is a page where I added them to the project. I will add a sound clip next week. I have the interior all out now replacing the carpet.

I see some added bracing there, not the RTLB, but some stuff under the exhaust running from the body to the sub-frame??

What are those connected to and what purpose do they serve?

Rest In Peace Mom.

Those tie into the roll bar and through the floor sub frame connectors, and the rear sub frame. The main purpose is to prevent any oscillation of the sub frame under hard acceleration. The car 60fts in the 1.40s with no wheel hop at all.

so they're actually connected to the rollcage itself? Do you have those welded to the body rails, and where/how on the IRS did you bolt those?

Rest In Peace Mom.
